Fedez ft. Tananai, Mara Sattei – La dolce vita [lyrics & translation]

La dolce vita (Sweet life)

E poi passa un anno e ci sembra meno
And then a year goes by and it doesn’t look like it’s been [a year]

Mi trovi diverso, mi prendi la mano
You think I look different, you take my hand

Da soli siam tutti nessuno
Alone we are all nobody

Che vita è?
What kind of life is this?

La vita senza amore dimmi tu che vita è
You tell me what life without love is

Oh, dove sei andata? Oh, mi sei mancata
Oh, where did you go? Oh, I missed you

Mi perdo dentro al taxi che mi porterà da te
I lose myself inside this taxi that’ll lead me to you

Bello stare a casa, musica italiana
It’s nice to stay at home, Italian music

E ci vuole ancora un po’
And it takes a bit more

Prenditi il mio letto, lasciami un pezzetto
Take my [whole] bed, leave me a little corner

Se non vuoi non me ne andrò
If you don’t want to, I won’t go

La vita senza amore non mi farà mai bene perché
Life without love will never do me good because

Non so dirti di no quando vivo solo per noi
I can’t say no to you when I live only for ourselves

Ah, Oktoberfest (uh), mi piace fare la fest-(festa)
Oh, Oktoberfest (uh), I like to part-(party)

Tutti nel back (ehi), tutti nel back a far fеsta
Everyone in the back (ehi), everyone in the back to party

Buonasera (hi), e chiedo scusa
Good evening (hi), and I beg for forgiveness

Non ho capito cosa c’еra nei suoi occhi
I didn’t understand what was in her eyes

Droga?
Drugs?

Perché sennò era colpa mia
If that isn’t so then it was my fault

Perché con me non studia mai
Because she never studies when she’s with me

So che canzoni vuole lei
I know what songs she wants [to hear]

Faccio parole col DJ
I talk to the DJ

So che non hai visto le Hawaii
I know you’ve never seen Hawaii

Dirotteremo Ryanair e se ci beccano ‘sti ca-
We’ll hijack Ryanair and if they find out, who the f*ck cares

La vita senza amore dimmi tu che vita è
Tell me what life without love is

Oh, dove sei andata? Oh, mi sei mancata
Oh, where did you go? Oh, I missed you

Mi perdo dentro al taxi che mi porterà da te
I lose myself inside this taxi that’ll lead me to you

La vita senza amore non mi farà mai bene perché
Life without love will never do me good because

Non so dirti di no quando vivo solo per noi
I can’t say no to you when I live only for ourselves

Chiamami se vuoi
Call me if you want

Diglielo agli altri che stasera non puoi
Tell the others that you can’t [come] tonight

Sei tutto per me
You’re everything to me

La vita senza amore dimmi tu che vita è
You tell me what life without love is

Oh, dove sei andata? Oh, mi sei mancata
Oh, where did you go? Oh, I missed you

E parte la corriera che mi porterà da te
There goes the bus that will take me to you

La vita senza amore non mi farà mai bene perché
Life without love will never do me good because

Non so dirti di no quando vivo solo per noi
I can’t say no to you when I live only for ourselves

Chiamami se vuoi
Call me if you want

Diglielo agli altri che stasera non puoi
Tell the others that you can’t [come] tonight

Sei tutto per me
You’re everything to me
